as high-ranking, frankly as former president bill clinton to go and be the negotiator. we need a person of enormous prestige and influence so have these parties sit down together. we're crumbling all over the middle east. >> john: that was john mccain talking about how much work is needed to regain credibility. >> boy. that will hurt your head if you think about that too long. >> john: somebody should tell him we have already had bill clinton trying to negotiate middle east peace. it has been attempted before and in fact the prime mainster of israel paid for it with his life. you know, i really think that there is no military solution to israel and palestine, and i'm on the side of any christian jew or muslim who is trying to solve our problems non-violently, because the only solution i think, is the next gandhi is going to have to come from israel or palestine. the next person to understand that non-violence is the only way to get social change out of a situation like this and that will also be a person male or female who understands social media and the digital
is not even begun. no foundation for blame. >> can'tou see bill clinton getting on the phone to barack obama and saying, you remember what i did back in 19 whenever. i made the republicans' response will be closing down the government. they never got over it. destroy them. lou: i think that actually i would not be surprised if bill clinton is not orchestrated the whole thing right now, if you will, behind the curtain. >> i would not be surprised if president obama was on the phone with a regular basis with former president clinton talking about what occurred in 95. they did force the government shut down and it was the end of republicans for a while. it was pretty extraordinary. >> barack obama campaigned on this issue. think he will dig his heels in, and he very successfully painted republans as obstructionists. that is at it will be blamed i agree with you. i think he will dig his heels in. not so sure that the republican leaders will dig their heels and on the taxhikes. i'm not sure where this will go. a see a potential for republicans giving, not barack obama. >> i would like to say that
not raise taxes during recession. even bill clinton said a millionaire surcharge is not going to help our debt situation. but both congress and the president, they need to go to the negotiating table and work out a deal and not leave until we working is out. jon: but in the past they haven't exactly shown that ability. i mean they haven't shown the ability to get that done. >> no. it is a new day, a new congress. congress doesn't look that different than it did before. >> a new attitude. not a new congress. i think now the american people have spoken and they didn't change anything but giving them a second chance. >> but what we also know, new day for republicans because pew research as well as "washington post" research polls show republicans will take the hit and credit for a deal not getting done if it does. there is that incentive as well. you have to look at ronald reagan as well as henry kissinger, when they went into negotiations, said you have to come willing to truly cut a deal. you may get 90%. >> takes both sides. obama is very good in liberal rhetoric blaming republicans. even
of it followed bill clinton's 1993 tax increase. now, mitt romney has just spent two years telling us that tax cuts are all you need to stimulate the economy. is that wrong? >> absolutely wrong. supply side economics is bunk. we have seen historically not only when bill clinton raised taxes the economy did very well. george w. bush in 2001, 2003, cut taxes and the economy did very badly and then ultimately went really over a cliff in 2008. or more evidence for the first three decades after the second world war in the united states, the top tax rate never fell below 70% under dwight d. eisenhower, president eisenhower -- >> and yet professor, we have heard paul ryan, the so-called budget policy wonk of the house, repeatedly tell us that what we need to do is cut taxes and the economy does great. >> well, that's just simply not true. we had an election. most of the americans obviously did not believe that nonsense, and it is absolutely nonsense. there's no correlation at all between tax rates on the very top and the economy doing worse or for that matter doing much better. but here we have a hug
's politics or bill clinton's politics. but hillary clinton was a good secretary of state. >> andrea: why? >> eric: she was tough. >> andrea: on what? >> eric: she didn't back down and she had ideas, thought about things and she did it her way. my point, susan rice won't be hillary clinton. susan rice will be a mouthpiece for president obama and not the american people. >> bob: curious, check this out and see if mccain and graham had such problems did they vote for her for-up? my guess is they probably did. >> greg: the u.n. loves her. the u.n. hated bolton which is why bolton was great. when u.n. loves you, they like someone to roll over. >> eric: they may have voted for her but that was prior to her lying to five different news organizations. >> bob: how can you accuse her of lying? the intelligence committee itself said that it was the same intelligence that the intelligence committee got the day before she testified. >> eric: be specific. >> bob: i will. senior member of the intelligence committee released the following statement. >> eric: you are always talking about who are the sour
, bill clinton won big. you know who else won big? me. when i went back in january of 1997, was i willing to work any more after bill clinton won the election than before? no. a lot of republicans that won an election in the house as well. i just say that to say the president can go ahead -- and to follow up on david, he could do brinkmanship if he wants. a lot of these guys have spent the last couple years in the house standing up to the president going after him aggressively. he got re-elected. >> and the government's organized the same way. >> yes. if the president wants to engage in brinksmanship, he can. >> the message they took from their own re-election in their district was go back to washington and fight the president. don't cooperate with what he wants to do. >> right. >> all right, josh -- >> that's what i'm saying, brinksmanship seems to be short-sighted right now. i think instead of flying all across the country and spending taxpayer dollars on air force one and your security detail, could you just try inviting people over to the white house? >> he's doing that, too. >> and w
and bill clinton. with a second term and a better economy, you can achieve a lot and become quite popular in the process? does obama have that in him? what do you want him to do now that he has four more years? >> the big thing he has going for him, he has four years he doesn't have to worry about getting re-elected. they start these elections about two years ahead of time usually. and that's where their focus goes on how do i keep doing this job, whether i'm a senator, congressman, or whatever it is, if you are a career politician, you always look out for yourself first. when the president's in this position, having been elected a second time, now he has nothing to lose. >> where do you you this he's been weak and where does he need to be stronger? >> i think he's been weak. my son was a huge obama supporter until obama ordered that american's death with the drone and then he lost my son. my son was so offended that a president could kill a united states citizen without a trial, without anything like that. and my belief, osama bin laden has to stop prosecuting whistleblowers the way he d
to the other. no one party can control the outcome of our collective deliberations. as bill clinton might say, it's just arithmetic. >> john boehner is making his bid for speaker of the house official in eye letter sent to his colleagues he says his priorities are taking on the president and democrats in the senate. he calls house republicans the last line of defense. mitch mcconnell is already thinking about 2014. the day after the election he held a fund-raiser for 1,000 bucks a person you could attend the reception. and here's a great perk about being first lady. michelle obama didn't want to wait until january to watch the third season of "downton abbey" so it sent dvds to the white house. the three of us are -- with hands on hips, where's ours? where's ours? >> if you read only one thing this morning, today's must read is courtesy of the national constitution center, which argues in a fascinating article why the petraeus affair has nothing on the nation's first sex scandal, hint, it included a duel and it's up on our facebook page alt facebook/jansingco. borm the naturally sweet monk fru
representation of president bill clinton and jack abramoff, also john edwards. we also know the kelley family has hired judy smith. that's a crisis manager, that has previously worked with monica lewinsky. so if that gives you an idea of who the kelley family now has representing them, it could say a lot about what may be contained in those 20,000 to 30,000 documents. >> so, i should mention. it's 20,000 to 30,000 pages of documents, which is still a lot. but i think that's a critical detail to clarify. and when you talked about judy smith, of course, judy smith, the tv show "scandal" is based on what she does. she's a crisis manager. so they've hired now, the real-life judy smith to help -- >> one of the top in the business. >> that's amazing. jason ranning with our affiliate bay nine news outside the kelley home in tampa, florida. thank you, jason. we appreciate the update. >>> ahead this morning we'll talk to a man whose political career was brought down by a sex scandal of his own. former new jersey governor jim mcgreevey will chat with us.

is a former economic advisor to president bill clinton, former advisor to the senate finance committee and a partner with monument policy group. gentlemen, good to see you. jonathan, let me start with you. is it really unrealistic to think that a far reaching fiscal grand bargain can actually be hammered out during this brief lame duck session with all the holidays, or is it more likely that an interim deal which postpones all elements of the fiscal cliff will be signed? >> i think it's possible because i think a lot of conversations have been happening over the last several months. one thing that has to be very, very clear for republicans is whenever they're talking about raising taxes, they're getting into some potentially very, very dangerous territory. the reason for that is simple, because whenever these budget deals happen, the tax increases always take place immediately, but the spending cuts are enacted over two years o'clock five years, ten years. five years from now, we'll have a different congress, different members of congress, they're not going to feel bound to whatever de
after the president's re-election. therethere would be an opportunity. >> john: like bill clinton's second term. >> the opportunity for some compromise. the president, governor romney struck a tone of bipartisanship. but there wasn't a -- really within a week, that's gone. you had senator john mccain yesterday basically saying he has no trust in the president. no credibility of the administration's investigation. that really is a -- you know, a sign that we're back to the politics as usual of -- where politics is in washington now. every issue becomes politicized hyperpartisan. >> john: you know, zeke, i'm not a democrat. and i'm pulling my hair out over the fact that these democrats are not pushing back on the benghazi issue at all. i've never seen a terrorist attack exploited for political gain -- well, since they used 9-11 to go into iraq -- seeing how this attack that killed four americans has been exploited to try to tear down a president. to smear this president. after in 2001, we were told united we stand. g
endorsement as president bill clinton included a twinkie in the millennium time capsule. in the youtube age, we have seen the twinkie put to the test, for shelf life, toughness and microwavability. >> that looks like a turd. >> reporter: but now the twinkie needs someone to come to its rescue or we'll have to say good-bye to the twinkie for good. >> oh, boy. >> so sad. i need a tissue. >> i know. i know. i know. so, alison, nice job on that, i like the look back and the music. walk us through what is happening. a lot of people are out of work, we're la meanting about the twinkie being gone, but lite a f people are losing jobs. >> they're losing their jobs. hostess, you go on the website, look, we're closing our doors. what they're doing, they're asking for access to $75 million to go toward winding down the biz and that includes money to pay its employees it needs to liquidate. it is going to be keeping its doors open and a few employees on long enough to get the last remaining product out the door to the stores and, you know, though the fate of one of america's favorite snack foods is at r

for the white house in years. he joins people like bill clinton, nancy pelosi, ed rendell, new york senator jill brand and republicans talking about it. google hillary clinton 2016 you get more than five million hits. for her part, mrs. clinton insists the answer's no. she's finishing her term as secretary of state. leave as one of the most popular members of the obama administration. clinton talks about how she's been in the political spotlight for 20 years. and she wants her life back. fair enough. says she wants to sleep, relax. okay. but what about after that? while hillary clinton has repeatedly said she won't run for president again, this is the same woman who says politics is in her dna. she is after all a clinton. and with a resume that includes secretary of state, senator, first lady, well, a democratic nomination is probably hers for the taking if she wants it. vice president joe biden's keeping the door open to a possible 2016 presidential run although he recently acknowledged it might depend on the economy. a memo to the vice president might also depend on hillary clinton. here's the
, but the republicans have substantial power because of the rules of the senate. the democratic president. as bill clinton would say, it's arithmetic. nothing is going to get done unless we find a way to work together. and i'll tell you, the public has just had it. well, you know, the approval rating of congress is in single digits. it's pretty awful. and it's all about, in my view, the inability to simply sit down and solve some of these problems. >> senator, quick question, brian sullivan from cnbc here. would you support a fiscal cliff resolution on taxes that did not involve an elevation of the top-end rate? in other words, 35 to 39.6, would you support a tax increase but only as boehner would like to do through the reductions or deductions, or are you fixed to that rate? >> well, i think we're fixed too much on this issue because it's only a small piece. even if you do the increase on the people above $250,000, it's a long way from solving the full problem. i'm a simpson-bowles guy myself in the sense that i think there's got to be an across-the-board settlement. so i think what you're really
is an understatement. >> we can see that there are healing opportunities. we have seen that with bill and hillary clinton. and then there are times it's irreparable. >> whether you plan to serve for just a few years or -- >> reporter: still, she is determined, staying at her job and at least for now according to friends continuing to work on her marriage. for "today," kristen welker, are nbc news, washington. >>> up next on "today," the rush for the register. why some people plan to skip that second helping on thanksgiving to indulge in holiday shopping. ♪ we were skipping stones and letting go ♪ [ female announcer ] nature valley granola bars, rich dark chocolate, toasted oats. perfect combinations of nature's delicious ingredients, from nature valley. ♪ nature valley granola bars, nature at its most delicious. ♪ be the first to get great savings at the petsmart beat the rush sale. save 30% on all petholiday™ by great choice® products and save $6 on purina one® and beneful® dog food. friday through sunday only, at petsmart®. fire bad! just have to fire roast these tomatoes. this is
.n. ambassador bill richardson. he served during the clinton administration. governor, ambassador, i don't know what to call you anymore. thanks for coming in. >> nice to be with you, wolf. >> i'm going to play this clip, senator mccain, a man you know quite well, and the president arguing over susan rice. >> we will do whatever's necessary to block the nomination that's within our power as far as susan rice is concern. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> pretty extraordinary you see a president get into a fight like this with senators mccain and lindsey graham. >> this is really unfortunate especially since it's only a few days after the election. we thought that bipartisanship was coming back especially in foreign policy. i know susan rice. i've known her a long time. she
time outgoing secretary clinton will be traveling with the president. they were hoping this trip will be about openness in asia. all of that is being overshadowed about it violence in the middle east. bill: does it say anything about the president's middle east policy in the wake of the arab spring? >> reporter: no question this put the administration on defense on whether they have a policy to deal with the arab string. >> let's remember the same situation arose a accumulation years ago before the arab spring. i don't think anybody would suggest somehow it's unique to democratization in the region that there is a conflict between the israelies and palestinians. that's been going on for several decades now. >> reporter: but the reality the president is facing, you have got the crisis in syria. iran moving closer to getting nuclear weapons. the middle east is a tinder box. a big challenge for this white house. martha: congress vowing to investigate how cia talking points about the attack on the american consulate in benghazi were changed before being made public. general petraeus
